For your [name something] collection?

say you download a lot of series, while they are not available in Germany yet.
Each season is about 8 GB.
10 seasons = 80 GB, 8 complete series is 640 GB.
That's coming close to a TB Another Tounge

I've been to one of those pub quiz nights when I was in Abu Dhabi. Not too bad. Good company and had a lot of fun. Drank a bit too much felt like crap the next day but it was all good.

Wow yeah that would be a hell of an advantage. Not sure if it would be allowed though Wink

The database dump is about 8 GB. (2 GB compressed)
This is the english version of Wikipedia, current pages only, no edit history, without the image files.
The complete database dump is about 10 GB, which might decompress into a 100 GB file, according to the website.
The image download is another 75 GB...
